More Spectacular Night-time Events

Just like the one that originated in Alkihabara, relax and let our cute Maids bring you some tasty delicacies such as Beef on a Bun and Corndog on a Stick. And no meal would not be complete without some of your favourites like Pocky and Ramuné! Welcome home goshujin-sama!
